Well, I'm biased. I used to be a bicycle mechanic, and I dig catalogs, so here's a twofer. The basic coaster brake bike hasn't changed all that much, but I was groaning in remembered frustration over the evil sew-up tires.
The coaster brakes, though, are a little more complicated than the familiar Bendix we all know and love, but well, aren't that different.
Work bikes aren't appreciably different, save for gearing, if present, but the sport bikes look so hopelessly outdated beside todays sport bikes.
